Chapel Services and Service Lists

The Choir of St John's College, Cambridge

We are delighted that we will be able to welcome you back to Chapel for services from Wednesday 6 October, after such a difficult past eighteen months. We will try to be as 'back to normal' as possible, but please take note of the following:

  • Evensong and Eucharist Services will resume their normal weekly pattern from Wednesday 6 October
  • Please do not come to Chapel if you are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms of Covid 19
  • There are hand sanitizer stations at entry points into the Chapel, please use them when entering the Chapel
  • We ask that all visitors please to respect those who wish to maintain social distancing. A designated area for those who would like to sit separately from others will be available in the Ante Chapel
  • To protect others, we request that you wear a face covering when walking to/from your seat and when moving to receive communion. Face coverings can be removed whilst seated, and are not required to be worn whilst singing
  • For the time being, communion will be received in one kind only
  • Visitor access to the College is limited to the Chapel only. Please enter the College via the Great Gate or Forecourt Gate

These arrangements will be kept under review as term progresses. Thank you for your co-operation in maintaining them, and we look forward very much to seeing you soon.
